Make games zippy

If you want a game to be zippier, you need to tell the operating system to give it priority. You want Quake to run better? If your game has a standard set of parms you can embed them in the batch file. Lets say that quake took the parms -a -y -t (made these up), then the quakestart.bat file could be:

start /high c:\games\quake\quake.exe -a -y -t

If you tend to use different parameters, you can use the following version of quakestart.bat:

start /high c:\games\quake\quake.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

From a commandline, type in

quakestart -a

[sorry for the silly parms but I don't play quake]
